Your Turn: A Coming Diplomatic Showdown Over WikiLeaks
The Ecuadorean government granted political asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange has been in Ecuador's London Embassy for nearly two months and says he's willing to return to Sweden to face trial, but not before getting an international guarantee that he won't be extradited to the U.S. With the Brits putting pressure on Ecuador, and Sweden not making any promises, what are your thoughts? Should Assange be allowed to leave the embassy and fly to Quito, Ecuador? Or should the Brits step in and not allow it (and breach diplomatic protocol)? And what role does pressure from the Obama administration have to do with it?
